Windows 7: HDD not compatible?

HDD not compatible?

I bought this HDD: CAVIAR GREEN 2TB 64MB 7200 SAT
It arrived to day, but when I put it in, it couldn't be found in either windows 7 or BIOS. I tried using the cables for my primary HDD, it still couldn't find it. So it's definitely the HDD. Is it possible that my motherboard isn't capable of recognizing/using the device? I got my computer 3 years ago, however I'm not sure the make/model of my motherboard. Or is it just a faulty HDD? Thanks.
